The cause of the fire is not yet clear, but officials said the blaze spread through packed classrooms because of the material used in the roof.

During the razing fire in Surat's coaching centre, a man took the risk to save lives of the students who were trapped inside Takshashila Arcade.

The authorities started investigating fire safety norms in coaching classes, private hospitals and other buildings in various towns and cities of the state. The shed on the terrace was enclosed on all the sides and could have led to accumulation of smoke on the top floor. The fire blocked the wood and metal staircase which was the only escape route, trapping these students. The fire was doused in one hour. Reportedly, no safety equipment was installed in the building, officials told.
